Glad it proved useful, but hope you're feeling better now.

The aspect ratio of the window whether full-screen or not is the same;
however "smallest" is a *really* low quality encoding to be the
smallest possible to watch for short clips. I tend to use a preset of:

    * "best" if I've never seen the thing before
    * "good" for everything else
    * "average" (the default) for very short clips and tests

"smallest" is the lowest quality which I find even bearable for
something I'm not watching properly (if you see what I mean).

Hope that helps,
